1. Start by writing the goal as far right as your drawing surface allows. The goal is you or your team's desired end-state.
2. Ask: “What would have to happen just before this for us to succeed?”
3. Put the answer to the left of the goal.
4. Ask the same question for that answer.
5. Repeat this process until you have stepped all the way back to today.
6. Make a plan on how you can start on the next immediate thing you need to do.
